Animals at the Extremes: Polar Biology
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

The extreme challenges of life in the polar regions require the animals who make their habitat there to make many adaptations. This unit explores the polar climate and how animals like reindeer, polar bears, penguins, sea life and even humans manage to survive there. It looks at the adaptations to physiological proceses, the environmental effects on diet, activity and fecundity, and contrasts the strategies of aquatic and land-based animals in surviving in this extreme habitat. This unit builds on and develops ideas from two other 'Animals at the extreme' units: The desert environment (S324_1) and Hibernation and torpor (S324_2).

Arecibo Message
Rating

This two week assignment asks students to interpret and analyze the 1974 Arecibo Message sent by Drake and Sagan. Week 1 introduces the concepts behind the construction of the message and engages with a critical analysis of the architecture and the contents of the message. Week 2 asks students to develop software in a Jupyter Notebook (available for free from the Anaconda Python Distribution) to interpret messages that were similar to those produced by Drake and Sagan.

Au Boulot! First-Year French
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

Au boulot! is a two-year college French program consisting of: a textbook, workbook and 21 accompanying audio exercises; as well as a reference grammar, to be used the entire two years. We also insist that our students obtain a full-sized dictionary, and we recommend the HARPER-COLLINS-ROBERT bilingual New Standard Edition. (Instructors will note in reviewing the materials that we provide vocabulary lists at the ends of chapters, with translations, but no glossary. We have become convinced after years of experience that glossaries are counter-productive. It is vital that students learn to use dictionaries, and the sooner the better.)

Each chapter in this book corresponds to a lab in the CHEM 3753: Introduction to Biochemical Methods course at the University of Oklahoma. All of the materials you will need for each lab can be found within its respective chapter. Each chapter will contain a brief introduction; a set of learning objectives; a slide presentation, screencast, or lab demonstration video; the protocol to be followed during your time in the lab; and a set of interactive quiz questions to help you check you understanding as you go. Other interactive features include photos from the lab, links to safety data sheets (SDS), and 3D chemical structures. Components of the book are elaborated upon below. We hope you find this book to be an all-in-one, fun, and engaging learning tool for the biochemical methods course.

Building-Stone Geology
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This laboratory activity gives an example of the creativity required when teaching non-native rock types. In order to study igneous and metamorphic rocks in central Florida (a huge area consisting solely of sedimentary rock), geology students examined building stones in downtown St. Petersburg. Each student picked a particular rock type used in a particular way (structure, decorative facade, etc.), performed geologic tests on it, read up on its properties, history, and uses, and prepared a paper on it. Part of the way through the project, the entire class held a walking tour, during which each students' building (and its stones) were visited, and the student studying that type of stone told the class what they had found out about it. Building on this context of use, this website describes learning goals, teaching notes and materials, methods of assessment, and additional reference and resource links for this field lab.
